The ramparts are 19 km long and generally 6 to 8 m high. The ramparts have 200 towers and 22 gates giving access to the interior of the medina. The doors have names that correspond to the different tribes of the region. To facilitate the trade and the communication of the doors were reserved to them. This is the case of Bab Doukkala or Bab Aylen, named after the respective tribes. Currently, the ramparts have lost their military function, the large gates that controlled the passages no longer exist.

Each door of the ramparts tells a story. Towards the south of the medina, the Bab Aghmat gate, welcomed the Almohad soldiers who managed to seize the city after a long siege. Bab Ahmar door or "red door" gives access to the splendid imperial garden of Agdal. Finally, the bab er-Roob door bears witness to a sad episode.
